ONLINE: Hand-drawn Animation (Ages 9-11)
Learn the basics of old school, hand-drawn animation. We’ll explore character design and create our own unique character who winks, waves and morphs.
- Students will need a light box (can be made with books, a sheet of plastic or glass, and a headlamp / iPhone flashlight if you don't have a professional light box). Students will need a computer for zoom and a smartphone for the Stop Motion App. Access to a photocopier or animation software can be helpful, but not necessary.
